Barefoot has the honour of working with some amazing animals all of who have different personalities and strengths. We also have some animals with specific disabilities or illnesses who need special care and benefit from the children being involved in their rehab, care training and development. Barefoot children take an active role in looking after the farm, the husbandry and the care of all the animals.
